#Ferguson: The Destruction in the Daylight

#Ferguson: The Destruction in the Daylight

Watching the coverage of the rioting, looting, and fires burning last night, my heart hurt for those who were having their lives and businesses destroyed by thugs who felt entitled to smash and steal things because, as someone commented on-air on Fox News last night while watching the Ferguson Meat & Liquor store be broken into and looted, “This is justice.”

Well, that “justice” is on the backs of hardworking people. Many of whom are black.

We are now getting a better picture of just how much destruction there was last night.

And while the cleanup has begun, with many people pitching in to help…

… the news is also breaking that at least one person has been found dead.

The body was found in a white Pontiac car parked in a driveway at around 9am.
The driver’s side window is shot out. The victim is a black male in his 20’s. There is no personal information about identity of the victim, or ownership of the vehicle.

Did this man die for “justice,” too?

As I told my daughter this morning, even if you feel that the “system” has wronged you, that does NOT give you the right to destroy OTHER people’s property. Black leaders and celebrities were busy screaming about the jury system last night. Will they stand up this morning to help those whose livelihoods have been trashed and burned by those claiming “justice”? I won’t hold my breath.

UPDATE: News is breaking that Michael Brown’s stepfather didn’t seem to share the call for calm that Michael Brown’s parents did.

Michael Brown’s stepfather last night repeatedly urged protesters to “Burn this bitch down” after a prosecutor announced that no criminal charges would be filed against the Ferguson, Missouri police officer who killed the unarmed teenager.

After consoling a weeping McSpadden, the 38-year-old (Louis) Head–who was standing atop a platform in the middle of the agitated crowd of several hundred protesters–began screaming “Burn this bitch down!” He did this at least ten times, and at one point yelled for a microphone so that he could broadcast his message beyond the range of his unamplified voice.

While trying to incite the crowd, Head (pictured above) was wearing a commemorative t-shirt with the words “I Am Mike Brown” and a beanie, both of which bore a silkscreened photo of Brown in his high school cap and gown.

Head is an ex-convict whose rap sheet includes two felony narcotics convictions, according to state records. He pleaded guilty in 1997 to a marijuana distribution charge and was put in a shock incarceration program and placed on probation for five years. After violating probation, Head’s release was revoked and he was remanded to state prison.

It seems that the president’s words – and the words of the parents – didn’t stretch very far.

    We can thank the media and the Lefties that control it for all this mayhem. This is the biggest non story of the year yet we have heard about it every single day since August thanks to the talking heads. Some stupid punk attacks a cop and the cop shoots him-it’s unfortunate all THAT had to happen but what does anyone with a brain thinks would happen? These idiot protestors claim police brutality killed an innocent angel-sure, that’s why the cops since last night have mowed down hundreds of them because they’re so brutal. I really wish that once the savages are all rioted out this mess fades away but I doubt it. Next there will likely be some lawsuit to gain “justice” and of course the Left will make sure nobody forgets all this. This country has gone nuts to make an act of idiocy out to be a 21st century version of the Boston Massacre.

      That’s true, but it’s also an example of the thug culture that predominates much of black society today. If blacks act like savages they can expect to be treated like savages; if blacks want to be treated as responsible citizens, they need to behave like responsible citizens. The problems within black culture are the fault of blacks and no one else, no matter how much they try to blame whites and “the system”. They can use Ferguson as a teachable moment and rejoin American society, or they can continue their descent into dependency and tribalism.
